The second solar eclipse of the year is to be witnessed on August 11, 2018. This eclipse will be seen in the north of North America, Greenland, northern Europe and North Eastern Asia. It will be the third eclipse of the season, occurring just fifteen days after the longest lunar eclipse of the century, which was also the second big eclipse of the year. It was more special because it brought a deep red moon with it. The expected timings for the eclipse will be from 8:02 am to 9:46 am.
Types Of Eclipse
Basically, there are four types of eclipses; total, annular, hybrid and partial.
Total Eclipse: A total eclipse happens when the moon covers the sun completely. Only the corona of the sun is visible, as a thin line.
Annular Eclipse: An annular eclipse occurs when the sun and the moon are exactly in line with the earth but the moon looks smaller than the sun to the person observing it.
Hybrid Eclipse: A hybrid eclipse is the one which appears total from some points and annular from the others. Thus it is somewhere in between the partial and the total solar eclipse.
Partial Eclipse: A partial solar eclipse occurs when the sun is obscured only partially by the moon. The sun and the moon are not exactly in line with the Earth.
Every Eclipse Comes With Its Partner Eclipse
It is a general cosmic rule that an eclipse never comes alone. Whenever an eclipse is there, another one also follows it. However, this time a third one has also stepped in. Every eclipse leaves its effects on the observers as well as non-observers by impacting their ruling planet and the zodiac. Here is a brief information on how this eclipse will affect your zodiac.
